Pregnant Kate Upton has had to take a break from exercise because she’s been so tired.

The Sports Illustrated model and her husband Justin Verlander announced in July (18) that they are to become parents, with a sweet Instagram post showing off Kate’s baby bump.

The 26-year-old has since revealed she took a whole month off her normal fitness routine because she was tired from travelling so much.

“But I’ve been completely trying to stay healthy and work out through the pregnancy, and doing the best I can. It makes me feel better, honestly,” she told People, adding she has changed up her workouts to make them safe during pregnancy.

“What I’m working toward is different. Instead of working toward being super fit, I’m strengthening my pelvic (area) and doing a lot of hip thrusts, body-weight hip thrusts and lunges and squats to help with delivery and make it easier, hopefully. Fingers crossed.”

And while the mother-to-be, who recently launched a new at-home workout programme called Strong4MeFitness.com, has yet to experience any desire for strange foods, Houston Astros baseball player Justin is looking forward to the ups and downs of pregnancy.

“Justin was the most excited about weird cravings,” Kate laughed. “He kept being like, ‘I can’t wait for the pickle run in the middle of the night’. I’m like, ‘Okay.’ But I haven’t had anything. I’m fine with all food.”

Kate and Justin started dating in 2014, and wed in Italy in November (17).
